Aro Recommended Navigators, The


UK 2001, 92 minutes
Dir. Ken Loach
Rating: [M]
Genres: Drama / Independent, Sociology


Aroview: Following British Rail’s privatisation in the mid-90s, a group of railway workers must steer their way through the rough times in this understated protest-drama from dir. Loach.

Using a cast of standup comics - Andy Swallow, Dean Andrews, Thomas Craig – adds camaraderie, character and eventually pathos to a familiar modern plight, drawing absurd humour and tragedy out of the encroaching corporatism. Dramatically this is perhaps a little slight, though is notable for addressing an issue little-confronted in film.
